Attract Generational Renters Today.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Oct 4, 2018 2:54:33 PM

In today's rental market, Millennials (80+ million strong) are the largest pool of renters. Gen-Z is not far behind as a fast-growing portion of the market. These generational groups prefer to rent rather than buy a home for multiple reasons. One of the most prominent reasons tends to be the amenity-rich offering of an apartment, such as common spaces and pools, on-site concierge, and typically located within an urban community. Trends and studies show that one of the most important amenities is technology. Millennials and Gen-Z will consider technology as one of their main decision-making factors when choosing a community.

Repercussions of the Net Neutrality Repeal.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Jul 26, 2018 3:45:00 PM

Ensure Your TV is Hurricane Ready.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on May 7, 2018 12:10:00 PM

Preparing for hurricane season brings a laundry list of to-do items to ensure you and your family are safe before, during and after the storm.

Your Hurricane Preparedness Plan Must Include Mobile Communication.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Apr 30, 2018 2:30:00 PM

Typically, as a property manager, residents only contact you when they need something. However, a vital responsibility of the property manager is to ensure residents are provided proper information any time of day on all aspects of the property, from scheduled board meetings and maintenance to violations and past due rent. Having a reliable and useful mobile communication system is crucial for daily operations, especially during emergencies to save lives.
